Ski Camp Coaches and Staff

At National Alpine Ski Camp our entire staff has a life long dedication and commitment to outdoor sports and the instruction of young people. All NASC coaches are athlete centered and have been trained to quickly identify each athlete’s motivation, understanding, and movements. Our ski camp coaches can then custom tailor a program to facilitate each athlete’s individual needs.

A 6-to-1 athlete-to-coach ratio allows National Alpine Ski Camp coaches to effectively coach to each athlete’s specific motivation, understanding and movements. We coach using body part specific, and skill specific feedback.
